Hi guys,
I have to admit that after seeing some of you guys pictures I am a bit shy on starting presenting mines. I am an amateur photographer although in the last years I didn't had enough time to practice photography, not to say product/commercial photography wasn't quite my type. But now that I started collecting car models and I willing to improve this. Critique is welcomed, I know that a few pictures lack DoF (although I could lie on intending to go for selective focus) and there might be a tendency of them becoming boring as they are all sharing the same festive Christmas scenario - but hey, as long as I had some extra lights why not just use them?

As I just started collecting, I have a few low cost models which most likely will be upgraded with the same type from a more premium manufacturer.

So the list goes as it follows:

Autoart
Mitsubishi Lancer WRC 05 - Plain Body Version (White) (AA80527)
Posted Image

1997 Porsche 911 GT1 - Plain Body Version (White) (AA89771) (still boxed, pictures will follow)
2011  Porsche 911 (997) GT3 RS4.0 (AA78148) (still boxed, pictures will follow)
2013 Alfa Romeo 4C (AUTOart 70188)
Posted Image

CMR
1959 Commer TS3 Truck Team Transporter Ecurie Ecosse (CMR206)
Posted Image


GT Spirit
2012 Porsche 991 911 Carrera S (GT 007 CS) Brewster Green
Posted Image

Posted Image



Porsche 911 (996) Carrera 4S (GT182) Grey -  meant to replace the Maisto C4S, but as the Maisto one is my first 1/18 I'll have to consider if I will really want to get rid of it
Posted Image


Kyosho
2012 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Final Edition (KSR18019R) - Metallic Red
Posted Image

Posted Image

2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM AMG Cabrio
Posted Image


KK Models
Porsche 911 by Singer - Dark Grey
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image


LCD
Honda Civic FK8 (White)
Posted Image

Suzuki Jimny - awaiting delivery


Maisto
Porsche 996 Carrera 4S
Posted Image

BMW Z4 E85 non-facelift
Posted Image

Not great, not terrible these two.. Quite decent for the price tag I must say


Minichamps
1987 Porsche 959 (155066205) Dark Grey
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image


Norev
2017 Renault Megane RS Tonic Orange
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image


1971 RENAULT Alpine A110 1600s White with red stripes
Posted Image

2019 Renault Megane RS Trophy Red
2017 Alpine A110 Premiere Édition White

The last two ones are currently on sale, still boxed. If I will decide to keep them for whatever reason I will upload a few pictures of them.


OTTO
2005 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 8 MR FQ-400 (OT862) - Cool Grey
I would have gone for the white version, but for the price tag couldn't say no to the cool grey.
Posted Image


Schuco
1968 Mercedes-Benz O 317 Renntransporter (450032100)
Posted Image

2015 Porsche Cayman GT4 Sapphire Blue
Posted Image


Solido
1990 Porsche 964 3.6 Turbo Guards Red
Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image


1969 Citroen Type HY BREIZH (S1804812)
Posted Image


Spark
Porsche 911 R (991) (WAX 021 000 26)
Posted Image

Posted Image


Top Marques
1998  Subaru Impreza S4 WRC - 2P "Ready to Race" (TOP40AW)

All wonderful models mate. Love each and every model you shown here. The Evo X, CMR truck and Solido's 964 really catches my eyes. I am patiently waiting on my red Solido 964 order as well.

Thanks a lot guys!

I managed to add a few more pictures in the first post and also went through a quick photoshoot with the Schuco Cayman GT4 which is one of my favorites, I have to admit. Guess that the Citroen HY has been postponed for tomorrow. :danke:

Welcome to DX :occasion14:  I'd love to see some more pictures and your opinion about the Commer Ecurie Ecosse transporter, I'm looking into adding that one myself.

Hi Mike,
thank you! I don't have any term of comparison as I am quite new to collecting and the Schuco Mercedes-Benz O 317 Renntransporter hasn't arrived at my place yet. But overall I think is a fair model, sealed compared to the un-sealed Fiat 642 RN2 Bartoletti transporter that CMR also offers. I just discovered a small glitch in the pait but I hope nothing major. the front grille could have been more detailed in my opinion and I couldn't find any attaching point for the two loading ramps provided. I will try to take her a few outside photos tomorrow in the daylight if it won't be rainy. All in all I am happy with it.

Mike, I still owe you this one. If I won't manage to do it tomorrow I will have to postpone it for the next week as I will be away a few days.

I just can't wait for the C4S to arrive as well.

Meanwhile the Otto EVO VIII FQ400 arrived. It's my first Otto model and I think this particular one might have been opened before as the speed tape inside the box was already cut and the model is a bit dusty. It was ordered from hobbyland bg as a reference. Also, I have to thank radu_ for spotting that the front logo has a missing part :occasion14: . I will replace it with the spare one provided when the model will go on display, for now it went back to it's box.

The Norevs have arrived as well. The Red Megane RS Throphy and the new white Alpine A110 went to sale so I haven't unboxed them yet. I wasn't sure regarding the old Alpine, but once I had my eyes on it I felt that this little one is a keeper. If there's a thing I don't like about it is the fact that it doesn't have any external mirrors and it was a bit damaged during the shipping.

Thanks guys. I've been away a few days on a business trip and I have managed to grab my models delivered overseas. Unfortunately the Schuco Mercedes Benz Transporter has an issue with the side door which I hope to get fixed within the next few days. Anyway, I returned just on time to have the Christmas lights still going :giggle:
The GT Spirit C4S arrived as well today and of course I couldn't help ordering the white autoART Ala Romeo 4C that is on sale on ck and modelissimo - I am expecting it as well within the next few days.

The Alfa midget has arrived as well. Nothing remains on the road for the time being, so maybe I will take a break from my compulsive buying, although.. I am not sure if I will be able to make it :giggle:

Just after taking a few snaps of the LCD Civic Type R I realized that the side light on the left front bumper is missing. And this is such a pity as I was almost about to call this the purchase of the year as I was quite amazed on the level of detail for the price tag. Unfortunately the price has reflected on the quality of the QC..
